    About

    Wissing - a reputable German frame manufacturer – creates one-of-a-kind styles appreciated for their bright, bold colors and unique structure. The brand’s first collection included 15 unique frames that featured distinctive shapes and eye-catching hue combinations (with up to 12 different colors in a single design). Made from premium quality cellulose acetate, the frames are guaranteed to stay bright even after years of regular use. Vivid design is just one of the many reasons why the manufacturer has chosen acetate as the base material to create its frames. By the way, acetate is also extremely durable and highly resistant to temperature changes, which prevents the frames from breaking or becoming brittle.

    Wissing is a sustainable company that is focused on serving the needs of the present time, without compromising on the future. With this vision in mind, the manufacturer strives to create products that both meet their customers’ requirements and do not harm the environment. Acetate is an allergy-free plastic made from natural renewable materials, which makes it Earth-friendly and safe for the skin. Moreover, Wissing frames are extremely lightweight and flexible to ensure superior comfort to the wearer. Easily molded into any extraordinary geometric shape, the frames boast unrivaled design that catches the eye.

    History

    Established in 1953, Walter Wissing & Co. specializes in creating unique eyewear frames crafted from premium quality cellulose acetate in any size, shape, and color. Located in Bensheim, Hessen, Germany, the company distributes its one-of-a-kind products around the world, from Paris and Milan to Las Vegas and New York. The brand is known for its extraordinary acetate glasses that feature a multi-layer construction and bright color combinations that catch the eye. The manufacturer doesn’t provide specific collection quantities with prescribed sizes; it creates frames according to customers’ exact specifications.

    From its early inception, the company was headed by Walter Wissing who had three daughters and no desire to take over the father’s business. The moment when Olaf Lauer, an optician who simply wanted to buy some material, crossed the threshold of the company, was the beginning of everything. Once Mr. Lauer headed the corporation in 1991, things changed a lot. He built a new plant and inspired the staff with a single aim – to create exclusive frames that would go beyond the known standards. Nowadays, the company is a globally trusted and highly popular manufacturer of top-notch frames boasting exquisite quality and catchy designs appreciated by thousands of celebrities and trendsetters all over the globe.
